October 20, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Greeting them as “Little Gray Folks from India who are newcomers in Denver”, the “News-Times” of Denver, Colorado, welcomed 25 monkeys which were received at the National Jewish Hospital recently.

The shipment of Indian monkeys has just arrived for the research bureau of the National Jewish Hospital for Tuberculous patients. These monkeys were contributed by a group of men, representing eight states of the Union, who visited the hospital to investigate and make plans for the new Infirmary Building which is to be built soon. Seeing the great need for monkeys with which to carry on the experimental work they contributed the amount needed to purchase them.

The Research Department of the National Jewish Hospital is the only tuberculosis research department of its kind in the country maintained by national Jewish philanthropy.
